In the run up to the Scottish Rural Parliament, Scottish Rural Action have teamed up with The Scottish Rural Network to run the Celebrate Rural Scotland 2016 photo competition. This is your chance to showcase your photography skills of rural Scotland. The Celebrate Rural Scotland competition has six themes related to the Rural Parliament event:
Angus-Show off this lovely part of the country, which is hosting the Scottish Rural Parliament!
Culture & Leisure-Everything from community events to kayaking!
Food & drink-Make our mouths water with your photos of Scotland’s fantastic produce.
House & home-From old farmhouses to new low carbon housing, we are looking for your photos of houses and homes in rural Scotland.
People-Whether hard at work or just enjoying the countryside, send us your best portraits and photos of people in rural Scotland.
A winner will be chosen from each theme, then it will be down to the public to vote in an online poll to decide the overall winner, who will be announced during the Scottish Rural Parliament. There will be a prize of a hamper full of Scottish goodies for the overall winner, with additional prizes across all themes from photographers under 16. For full information on the competition, see https://www.ruralnetwork.scot/photo-competition. Deadline for entries is 12noon on 5th September 2016. For young people, the deadline is now extended until 5pm on 9th September 2016.
